Being taught the proper way to speak about disabilities really helps, I am now trying to speak in “ Person first” so as not to discriminate or place a stigma upon a person’s shoulders.

We have learned in our classes that Lilian Wald was the first woman to start to implement school nursing in order to help the absenteeism that was occurring in the early 19th century (National Association of School Nurses, 2018). Fast forward some time and in the early 1990’s the Connecticut State Department of Education formed a committee to develop guidelines for students with special health care needs in response to the increasing numbers of children with acute, long-term, and chronic health problems who attended schools in Connecticut, it was named and released in 1992: Serving Student with Special Health Care Needs (National Association of School Nurses,
Reinhart explains that through this technique, the teacher and the student must reverse the roles of the typical classroom; the teacher must become the listener and the student must become the explainer. The teacher should make sure that each student is involved in the lesson, ask process questions, open-ended questions, be patient when waiting for answers to these questions, and ultimately never say anything a kid can say. This method is something that I would like to implement in my future classroom. I know that it will take practice and perseverance, but it is something that I know I can
It is usually concerned when the textbook is already in operation. Ellis (1997) mentions two main approaches: micro approach and macro approach to evaluation of materials for the purpose of selecting, improving and modifying materials to meet the learners and teachers' needs in a specific teaching and learning context.

Describe some teaching strategies that can be used to explicitly teach vocabulary. Vocabulary knowledge is critical to reading comprehension. There are different effective strategies that teachers can use with different age students: - Pre-teaching new words (teaching new words prior to the new reading experience; the teacher before to teach a new content has to determine new words by previewing reading materials, define and discuss the meaning of these words with students) - Keyword method (new words are introduces before reading by giving students a word clue – a part of word definition, or illustration) - Word maps (the teacher determines words to be taught, for each word child has to make a graphic organizer) - Root analysis (the teacher is focusing on teaching the commonly occurring part of the words – suffixes, prefixes, roots; when students are able to break sown words into parts they are able to determine words’ meaning) - Rearrangement of reading material (the teacher can replace the difficult words with the easier ones to help students to comprehend
Introduction Personal Philosophy Good order is essential in a school if children are to be able to fulfil their learning potential. In the classroom, disruptive behaviour not only reduces children’s ability to concentrate and absorb information, but also unsettles children and causes immense stress for teachers. While the problem of classroom management in the school setting needs to be addressed, the definition of classroom management must be established. “Classroom management refers to all of the things that a teacher does to organize students, space, time and materials so that the student learning can take place” (Wong & Wong, 2005, p.84). As an educator codes of ethics which serves to guide meaningful conduct should include being honest, trustworthy and engaging in lifelong learning.
A discipline plan should be in place for all teachers to enable them to know what to do if classroom behaviour is disruptive in advance (Rogers, 2014). Good behaviour can be achieved by modelling appropriate behaviour, and teaching and reinforcing new skills that will in turn create and preserve a positive classroom environment. However it is essential to remember that each child is different and so it is important to carefully observe the child and use the information gathered to compile efficient and effective intervention and management strategies that respond to the needs of the individual
